YAKIMA, Wash.-- A boy in Yakima who is losing his vision will get to see Disneyland-- and now much more.
Action News first brought you the story about Chael Rodriguez, the little boy with cone rod dystrophy. He is already legally blind and could lose his vision completely any day.
The community has come together to raise nearly $6,000 on a gofundme.com page to help with Chael's adventures.
His family held a car wash for him Saturday and Sunday to help raise money for his future.
Children's Wishes and Dreams will fund their trip to Disneyland.
But thanks to community support, Chael will also get to go to the beach for the first time, among other trips.
His mom says they want him to see as many things as possible before he goes blind.
"We can go out in public now and people stop my son and show support and just give him hugs. 'we can't wait for you to go,' I don't know it just makes me break down and cry everyday because it's amazing the support that not only the community but around the world has given us," Heather Butler said.
The family raised over $1,400 dollars this weekend for Chael.
